How we judge in the PYP classroom can be daunting at first! This section is divided into several parts that will help you on your way to becoming a valuable professional.

In this section you will:

  • Explain the 4 types of assessment
  • Tackle the elephant of summative assessment in the classroom
  • Explain what assessment looks like in the classroom using actionable strategies

If we had to sum up the PYP ranking in one sentence, it would be thisprocess about the product.

How can we shift our focus to demonstrating the learning journey rather than focusing on what students do or end up doing? Think of reviews as storytelling. How can you give a clear picture of where students started, what changed or expanded their thinking, and what challenges and achievements they encountered along the way?

Viewing assessment in this way really becomes a process of collaborative thinking to promote learning.

This is how you assess the IB PYP: process versus product (6)

The 4 types of assessment

The Principles of Practice describes four types of assessment and gives us a visual guide to where as assessors we should spend most of our time. We set aside the terms "formative assessment" and "summative assessment" and focus on the four types of assessment described in the template below.

Ratings should all be integrated and flow into each other and not considered separate items as shown in the image below.

As you can see, most of your reviews fall into this category. We like to group them. You can think of monitoring and documentation as a traditional formative assessment.
Monitoring:Quickly check students' progress against their goals.
Document:Capture the learning journey. Show what happened to change and expand thinking along the way.

measure learning


Periodic metric assessments provide an overview of what students are and are not able to do against a class goal or set of success criteria. These can be more traditional tests or quizzes, projects or reflections.

learning report


(Video) PYP assessment no 2

By reporting, we share what we learn with the wider learning community. These can be conferences, official exhibitions or joint presentations and performances.

This is a common misunderstanding of the PYP documentation.

You CAN still do cumulative assessments. It is an enjoyable part of being an IB teacher, allowing students to plan, create, perform and share what they have learned.

However, these assessments should not be overwhelming and should be related to learning. They should be part of the assessment puzzle and seen more as one way (among many) of documenting learning!

That said, you don't have to. It is perfectly acceptable for students to put together a collection of their work to showcase their learning. Again, we focus on the process, not the product.

How is assessment in your classroom?

This is how you assess the IB PYP: process versus product (10)

Before starting a session

We must enter into a process of selecting and developing the standards we want to cover in the unit. These should be clearly expressed as what students know, understand and can do.

See again Part 2: What We Evaluate for more clarity on this process.

throughout the unit

You will go through this cycle several times throughout the unit. First, identify the knowledge, skill, or understanding you want to focus on.

Measure current perceptions and needs: think of it as a pre-assessment. You will know about the student's prior knowledge Where are the students right now and how does this connect?with the goals you set for the unit?

Set Individual Goals: Next, engage in a goal-setting process. These can be classroom-wide goals based on your data or differentiated based on the needs found in your classroom. At this stage, you can consider both renovation and expansion.Where do the students go?

Monitoring and Documentation: Gather evidence of challenges and growth related to goals during the session. What changed the thinking or proved difficult? How can you provide a photo album with elements that show the learning journey?How did we get there?

At the end/if applicable

Reference: How, if at all, will you share the learning journey with the learning community? This is a good time to think about everyone involved.How can families and the wider school community come together to engage in the learning process?

Watch this video for a guided look at this cycle:

Check out the article for more ideas and assessment templates to use in your classroomwhat we rate the blog. Consider how you will assess the new knowledge, understanding and skills you will develop during the session. Could you use the same classification multiple times throughout the unit?

Check out this great video from Tokyo International School and explore how this team sets up an assessment cycle using the guiding questions provided:

(Video) Understanding PYP assessment

When it comes to judgment, the most important thing is balance. As teachers, we work with students to document the learning journey and adapt teaching and learning as needed. Understanding the different types of assessments and when to use them will take you one step further in your journey as a PYP assessment practitioner.
